Meet the Iris Works Ambassadors!

We have some pretty amazing and talented photographers that use Iris Works for their photography management software. Some of the best in the business have picked us to help run their businesses – and we have partnered with them to create our ambassador program!

Our ambassadors not only help introduce others to our photography client management software, but also help us with content on the blog by writing guest blogs, some have provided us with top to bottom photography workflows that our users can purchase via our Marketplace, and take over our Instagram account to give you an insider look to their day as pro photographer! Many of them offer workshops and mentorships (in person and online) to help you up your game in your speciality or business. You will definitely want to check our what they have to offer if you’re ready to take your business to the next level.

“My favorite aspect of Iris is being able to have an automatic workflow setup once clients book, makes it possible for me to book clients while I’m enjoying time with my family, on vacation or even out shooting! I know once they select a date on my booking calendar, my workflow is triggered, and they will get all of the info they need: welcome email, contract, questionnaire and styling info; plus a booking retainer invoice–all without me lifting a finger! That’s smart business ;)”

Rachel is a newborn and family photographer in Indiana.  She also created The Collective which is a member-based educational program for photographers.

“When I joined Iris, I was looking for a client system that would automate the way I run my business. Each week I would spend countless hours writing the same emails to clients, and trying to track where they were in the booking process. After testing out a few different companies, Iris was the perfect fit for my booking workflow. It has everything from email automation, client tracking, contracts, and invoices all in one client profile which frees up so much of my time to focus on the more creative side of my business.”

“I’m a mom of a large family and support us solely financially (my husband is a stay at home dad) and before he became my full time assistant, I had to do all my emails and booking by hand. It was incredibly stressful to keep everything straight and I had a habit of overbooking and double booking myself. I couldn’t bring myself to hire an outside assistant though because I didn’t want my business to lose its personal feel, and I loved that Iris gave me that ability. It also frees up a lot of time to be with my family
